Stunning experience or was it a Taser?
Both are being used by city police departments
U.S. police departments overwhelmingly rely on Tasers
94% of police agencies now using this type of stun gun,
Not all officers carry them in departments that own them
Tasers are commonly used by police around the nation as a “non-lethal” weapon to stop confrontation.
Some people think stun guns and Tasers are one and the same.
But really different weapons.
To be used in two very different kinds of situations.
Main difference is the proximity at which they work.
